LITTLE TOWN, GREAT BIG LIFE is truly magnificent and a beautiful gift from Ms. Matlock to her faithful fans and new readers alike. ~Betty Cox, ReaderToReader.com
Little Town, Great Big Life is the eighth and final book in my Valentine Series. As it turns out, it is published at a time when a part of my personal life comes to a close and another comes wide open. No doubt I am seeing with very sentimental vision, because of just having celebrated the life and passing of my dear mother-in-law. Such events in our lives—seemingly ordinary but uniquely personal to everyone–open our vision and help us to see ourselves and life with more clarity.
I thank each of you who have written encouraging notes, letting me know you like my stories. And special appreciation to each of the reviewers who have written so eloquently about Little Town, Great Big Life, as well the other books of the series. I am reminded of comments by two writers, great teachers to me: mystery writer, Carolyn Hart, who said: “We are responsible for what we write,” and Brenda Ueland, writer from another century, who taught: “Everybody is talented, original, and has something important to say…”
In celebration of Little Town, Great Big Life, and the entering of this new period in my life, I’m going to do a week of book giveaways. To kick things off, I’m giving away two books: an advance reading copy of Little Town, Great Big Life and a copy of Chin Up, Honey.
Each person who leaves a comment on this post now through Sunday, May 30th, will automatically be entered to win. Feel free to simply say, “I want the books!” Throughout the coming week, I will be giving away more books, so stop back in and join me in the celebration.
Have a safe, blessed Memorial Day weekend.
